We had tons of fun on our impromptu trip to this museum. Not bad on pricing and the kids had more fun here then anywhere else ( ages 2 and 3)

Port Discovery is a great place for children and families of all ages to learn and have fun. It is located near many other local attractions and restaurants. Definitely recommended for families with kids 13 and under visiting Baltimore.

This place is great for the kids to run around in. It is well organized and very cool. Our toddler loved it and there were a wide age range of kids in there. Very reasonable at $15.95 a ticket. Under 2 is free.
